 Not to belabor this, but I think the thing that bugs me about the fit is not really how the jacket's length seems on the more traditional side whereas everything else is very cropped (and very well done in that respect). Even the sleeve width and lapel width of the jacket are very slim. I wonder if you wouldn't look more natural if you relaxed the dimensions a half inch or an inch in every direction. I'm also quite tall and slim, but find that erring on the slim side of...
 Quality isn't great. I wouldn't pay more than $100 for one of their cashmere sweaters. I honestly prefer their merino but they don't do that cable knit in merino. In my experience the solid color cashmeres have a softer hand to them than the heathered colors. I'd also expect the sweater to stretch about one size after a decent amount of wear.
@bkotsko that Color 8 is crazy light. They must have finished it very naturally.

The jacket is made of a gorgeous, top-shelf brown calfskin that surpasses many reputable bootmakers in terms of quality. This is also a second edition...
 I know I know I know. I'm also wearing it today with seersucker Walt shorts. The fabric really softened up after the second wash.
For the grey shirt, a twisted yarn/heathered would be great. Most heathered grey shirts out there are awful polyester blends.
 Congratulations!!

 Mike discussed it on the previous page. They're close-ish but still working on it.  Thanks! Those Juniper Linen Walts are the truth.
